My take on the Benefit they’re Real! Lengthening Mascara: It comes packed in a grey plastic tube with a metallic top. The logo and details has been printed on it. It is a 6m tube that is lightweight and travel friendly. The bigger version of this mascara comes in a fully metallic tube. The wand is comfortable and easy to use during application.


Texture: It has a creamy formula that goes smoothly over my lashes. It seems as though I have falsies on but in a subtle way. I absolutely love it. I have curled yet very scanty eyelashes so you can see the difference very clearly on the eye swatch below. It added volume as well as  lengthen my lashes making it much fuller and pretty.It doesn’t clump even after applying multiple coats. I hate spidery looking lashes.

Color and Pigmentation: Jet black in color. Just a single coat gives you dark and dense lashes. You can apply two or more coats for deeper saturation.

Staying power: Amazing. It stays put until removal. Since it is water resistant, you will need a good makeup remover to take it off completely.


Beauty tip: Want a big, doe-eyed look? Fan corner lashes outward with the custom-domed tip. The precision bristles make it easy!

The good things:

Adds volume

Lengthens lashes

Travel friendly

Creamy texture

Clump free

Great pigmentation


Long wearing

The bad things:


Need makeup remover for removal

Rating: 5/5

Recommendation: OMG! Yes. I have found my HG mascara so will you unless you try it.
